I’ve spent a lot of time blogging here about the many ways folks are trying to deal with hard times, but here is one situation where you have to wonder if the pain is worth the reward. As people are losing their jobs and seeing declines in their home values, they are being forced to wait out the bad economy. Specifically, divorced couples and those who have recently broken up are being forced to postpone plans to move out. This means that even though couples have split, they’re forced to stay under the same roof to save money. Talk about awkward!
